AfterShock Comics
Editor-in-Chief Mike Marts.

AfterShock Comics will be at NYCC 2019 next week, and as such, the publisher has now announced its signings, panels, and con exclusives.

Con-goers can find the rising indie publisher at booth #2242, where the following show exclusives will be on sale: variant covers created just for the show for Dark Ark: After the Flood #1 (one cover by Nat Jones as well as another lenticular cover by Mike Rooth); original graphic novel Horde (cover by Leila Leiz); and A Walk Through Hell, Vol. 2 (cover by Andy Clarke).

AfterShock Comics has also assembled a fairly robust signing schedule for the show, one that includes appearances by the many rising creators the publisher has been working with as of late. That list includes Steve Orlando (Dead Kings), Juan Doe (Bad Reception), Frank Tieri (Pestilence), Leila Leiz, and Adam Glass (Mary Shelley: Monster Hunter). AfterShock is encouraging fans to check its website for exact times during the show.

Cullen Bunn, who has been doing quite a bit of work for AfterShock as of late, appearing on the aptly-named panel, One-on-One with Cullen Bunn, which is slated for Saturday, October 5, from 5:15pm – 6:15pm in Room 1C03. AfterShock Comcis’ leadership will largely all be in attendance at the show, including Editor-in-Chief Mike Marts; Publisher/Chief Creative Officer Joe Pruett; President Lee Kramer; Managing Editor Christina Harrington; SVP Sales & Marketing Steve Rotterdam; Senior Retailer Relations Manager RuthAnn Thompson; and Senior Retail Sales Development Manager Marc Hammond.

This has been a big year for AfterShock Comics, and it seems likely they’ll have quite a bit to talk about.

Oh, and finally, what kind of comics reporter would I be if I did not call everyone’s attention to this intriguing bit from the end of the NYCC AfterShock press release, just sitting there at the end, mysteriously…

Fans will also have a rare opportunity to take home a limited edition, one-of-a-kind AfterShock Mystery Box, a value of close to $200, for only $75. Contents may include graded comics, signed comics, rare variants, complete series runs and surprise items every comic enthusiast will enjoy.

I will stop short of quoting the movie Seven here, but don’t let that stop you.
